    Hi all
    Is Ripperana still going.
    Used to subscribe years ago but a house move combined with a general (temporary ) loss of interest in the case meant not being particularly bothered ,interest rekindled now by a crossword strangely enough but more of that on another thread later.
    Best wishes to all

    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

      I used to get free copies until I moved 3 years ago. Haven't seen one since. A lot of people say they subscribe and get issues, yet no one seems able and willing to post subscription details.

      Yours truly,

                Thanks for that, Phil. I just e-mailed Nick about getting this issue. Having just read Monty and J.G. Simons' excellent piece on Coles/Sadler in the new issue of Casebook Examiner, I'm curious to see what Ripperana has to say on the same subject.

                Yours truly,

                    I've always enjoyed Derek Osbourne, both in Ripperana and in Ripperologist. It's a shame he doesn't contribute to the Casebook.

                    Yours truly,

                      Hello Tom,

                      I agree. I was hoping he would be at the conf last year, but if he was, I must have missed him. I am pretty sure he reads the boards though. If you are reading this Derek, please do get in touch? Many thanks.

                      best wishes

                          Yes, I notice it says that Naso's DNA doesn't match what was recovered in the NY ABC murders. The guy almost has to be a copycat if that's true and there's no error - I mean, what are the odds otherwise?!

                            Hello Stan,

                            A good point indeed.. which has remarkable meanings, IF one wishes to see them in a more convoluted sense, to the series of murders in East London, 1888-1891.

                            Hope you are well.

                            best wishes

                              Hello Phil and the best to you as well. All is good here.

                              Yes, hopefully we can learn something from cases like this.

                              Sometimes it turns out that the guy who had to have done it didn't do it. Another example is Arthur Allen in the Zodiac case. It does look like Naso was guilty of the California murders though while Allen was not guilty of any slayings at all.
                              This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.
